This is a special item. Very rare indeed in an original box. We are told that only 10000 of these were sold in its brief period of availability between late 1959 and sometime in 1960. It was 57/6d or just under £3 which means it was one of the most expensive sets, beaten in price only by the Garage and Silverstone Layout sets and, allowing for inflation, it would have been more costly than any others subsequently too.
The contents can all be obtained individually at around £500 but in a box with the packing pieces like this and the attractive top the set is worth considerably more.
I am selling this on behalf of a client and you should contact me to make an offer and discuss the set.
Everything is original apart from missile nose cones and the 353 radar aerial.
